Stories about songs–the soundtrack to our lives. Dana Rossi hosts this monthly dose of music inspired nostalgia where guest writers and performers tell the hilarious or heart wrenching stories and memories they forever tie to certain songs. The Soundtrack Series has been called “the best rock and roll storytelling event in New York” by Flavorpill, and has been featured in the New York Times, BUST, NY1, “Above and Beyond” in the New Yorker, a Critic’s Pick in Time Out New York, and included among the “Best Events and Things to Do in NYC” by CBS News New York.
John and Molly Knefel are siblings, writers, and comedians. Together, they host Radio Dispatch, a progressive political podcast that airs Monday through Thursday. Combined, they’ve written for the Nation, the New Inquiry, Salon, Truthout, Alternet, Feministing, the Hairpin, and xoJane, and appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann, the BBC, NPR, and 30 Rock. They began their comedy show, John and Molly Get Along, over 3 years ago, and produced a well-received web series of the same name.
With Radio Dispatch Live, John and Molly will bring their comedy and politics to the stage. Each show will be a conversation, featuring guest thinkers, writers, and performers. Imagine a Sunday talk show, but with beer and radical analysis.

She is a contributor to the anthology Madonna and Me: Women Writers on the Queen of Pop, and her writing has also appeared in New York Press, Time Out New York, Broken Pencil, the Retroist,and In Digest. She still occasionally calls her iPod her Walkman, out of a habit she is now certain will never go away.
